ISANS, the Immigrant Services Association of Nova Scotia, has a main office in District 9 of HRM. I went to visit Jennifer Watts CEO of ISANS here in Halifax at what is normally a hive of activity but due to Covid is staying safely a buzz dealing with all things immigration. She puts to rest some of the misconceptions about immigration and sets things straight about the difference and connection between immigration and refugees. It was a truly inspiring and enlightening chat.
